Entry for competition: The LSBA is working with Soldiers' Angels, to assist with their First Response Backpack Program. First Response Backpacks are used to help wounded U.S. soldiers.
About First Response
When military personnel are injured or wounded, treatment and transportation occur with such speed that sometimes their gear and personal items never catch up with them. They are often evacuated wearing the same clothing they wore when they were wounded--clothing that is often damaged in action or removed during treatment--and soon find themselves without easy access to basic supplies.
To address this situation, Soldiers' Angels created the First Response Backpacks in partnership with The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and Minimus.biz. The backpacks provide comfortable clothing, a full set of travel-sized toiletries and accessories (such as toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, shampoo, and soap), an international calling card, and a handmade Blanket of Hope.We also include a zippered, hooded sweatshirt with the Soldiers' Angels logo. Since the First Response Backpacks project started, this partnership has resulted in the distribution of more than 15,000 backpacks for the wounded.
How First Response Backpacks are Used
First Response Backpacks are one of the first indications wounded or ill soldiers receive that Americans back home are thinking of them. They are distributed in-country to Combat Support Hospitals and other major facilities that treat or transport the wounded, as well as smaller facilities where a mildly ill/injured soldier might stay for a short while before returning to his or her unit. They are also used at the military hospital in Germany at Landstuhl, through which all medical evacuees from Iraq and Afghanistan pass on their way home to the United States. At each of these locations, the backpacks enable medical staff to quickly grab an all-in-one pack that meets the basic hygiene needs of patients so that the staff can focus on medical concerns.
Entry for the Soldiers' Angels Youth 3-D Archery Challenge will be 5 donated items for the First Response Backpacks for each of the qualifying rounds you shoot.
The following are used in the First Response Backpacks. Please note that items must be new and unopened (large and extra-large are the most requested clothing sizes):
*PLEASE, no used clothing
International Phone Cards
Cards and Letters of Encouragement
T-Shirts, solid grey or black*
Lounge Pajamas *
Snacks and Goodies
Lip Balm (Chapstick)
Travel size personal hygiene items (deodorant, shampoo, etc)
Volunteers from the Soldiers' Angels will have a booth set up at our event to collect these items to be used to help wounded soldiers at American combat hospital around the world.
Aim to help a wounded U.S. Soldier!
Shoot to make a difference!
The LSBA hopes to make this a huge event to help wounded US soldiers! Soldiers and their families make great sacrifices fighting for our freedoms. Let's give back to them and say thank you for your service!
Donations will also be accepted independently of the 3-D shoot. Backpacks can be purchased through Soldiers' Angels for $56.00. Visit their website at
